CIT Alumnus Authors Pioneering Book on Quantum Transport Physics

Posted 17 Nov, 2009 by webmaster in Alumni Highlights|CEA

Dr. Felixberto A Buot, Ph.D., a Cebu Institute of Technology alumnus (B.S.M.E ’60), launched his book entitled, Nonequilibrium Quantum Transport Physics in Nanosystems: Foundation of Computational Nonequilibrium Physics in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology‚ on August 2009.

The book represents an expanded version of his research monographs and research papers in nanoscience and nanotechnology, upon the invitation of the World Scientific Publishing Co.‚ one of the world’s leading publishers of advanced scientific books. Dr. Buot’s book deals with his pioneering work on discrete phase-space quantum dynamics in solid-state physics and his quantum superfield theoretical formulation of nonequilibrium quantum physics, in real time i.e., without the awkward use of time contour employed in previous formulations.

It is targeted towards advanced undergraduates, graduate students, nanodevice physicists and electrical engineers, as well as nanomaterial scientists. This book is now available worldwide through online bookstores and at World Scientific.

The CIT Alumni Association (CITAA) and the whole CIT community take pride in Dr. Buot’s latest achievements and celebrate this momentous occasion of the publication of his book.

About the author

Dr. Felixberto A. Buot obtained his B.S.M.E. from Cebu Institute of Technology with top honors in the Mechanical Engineering Department being the “Best Bet” for the 1960 Mechanical Engineering Board Examination. Consequently, he scored among the ten topnotchers of the M.E. Board Examination for that year.

He received M.S. (Nuclear Physics) from University of the Philippines, M.S.E.E. from Stanford University, and Ph.D. (Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics) from the University of Oregon. He was awarded postdoctoral research associate positions and postdoctoral fellowships in the following institutions: (a) Department of Mathematics, University of London, U.K.; (b) International Center for Theoretical Physics, Trieste, Italy; (c) McGill University, Canada; (d) St. Francis Xavier University, Canada; (e) Stanford University; (f) Laboratory of Atomic and Solid-State Physics and National Research & Resource Facility for Submicron Structures, Cornell University. From 1982 to 2003 he was a Research Physicist at the U. S. Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C., retiring from NRL in October 2003.

He is currently a Research Professor at George Mason University. He has published more than 125 scientific archival research publications in leading scientific journals, mostly as the sole and/or principal author, several book chapters in the following books: Wiley Encyclopedia of Electrical and Electronics Engineering; Handbook of Theoretical and Computational Nanotechnology; Nanomaterials; Topics in Current Chemistry: Density Functional Theory II; Bell’s Theorem Quantum Theory and Conceptions of the Universe; Molecular Electronic Devices; Fundamental Research on the Numerical Modelling of Semiconductor Devices and Processes; The Physics of Submicron Structures; The Physics of Semimetals and Narrow-Gap Semiconductors, and in several Conference Proceedings Books, as well as speaker in international scientific conferences of more than 50 contributed and invited (plenary) talks. He has served in International Advisory Committees and Technical Program Committees in several international scientific conferences. He serves as Member of the Editorial Board of scientific journals. He was President of the Philippine-American Academy of Science and Engineering (PAASE). Dr. Buot is a Fellow of the Washington Academy of Sciences, and a Senior Member of IEEE.

His research interest covers wide ranging areas in condensed matter physics, nonequilibrium quantum field theory, computational nanoscience and nanotechnology, quantum information and quantum computers.
